Support » Plugin: iThemes Security » [Plugin: Better WP Security] Google Maps API

  • Resolved Steven


    The plugin strips the query string from the Google Maps API Javascript when it is enqueued which breaks Google Maps. This is the error message that can be found in the browser console log.

    The Google Maps API server rejected your request. The “sensor” parameter specified in the request must be set to either “true” or “false”.

    Here’s another report of this problem. You may also need to disable the “Filter suspicious query strings” option.

    Bit51, can you create a whitelist of popular URLs that are known to be safe?



    Same issue, tnx @alex80ks for the solution! I do not need to disable the “Filter suspicious query strings” option, just unchecked option “Generate random version number”. A fix should be great!

    I will look at adding a whitelist feature in future versions.

    Hello faina09,

    How did you unchecked the “Generate random version number”. Please help here is my email add [ redacted, support is offered via the forum and not email ] 🙁

    system tweeks -> Display random version number to all non-administrative users

    I checked both of the suggested choices above:

    • “Filter suspicious query strings”
    • “Generate random version number”

    I am still having the problem in “all” browsers except Firefox (Problem show up in IE, Chrome, Safari and Opera)

    Please see:

    Can you please help?


    signcarver, you’re supposed to uncheck them.

    DOH – Damn it Jim!

    boy do i feel silly

    unchecking works fine – thanks!

    Doesn’t work for me. Using the Estate theme with IDX plugin, it doesn’t show the map at all with the plugin enabled. Unchecking ALL of the tweaks, removes the error message, but also hides the map…

    Seems only disabling the plugin helps…
